HTE 059: Brian Clark on Partnerships and the Creativity of Limitations

Brian Clark on Hack The Entrepreneur Feb 11th 2015


When I originally sat down to outline the idea for Hack The Entrepreneur, I immediately wrote out a short list of  people that I wanted to interview. I used this list as one of my metrics for success and I am happy to say that today’s guest is number two on that list.

The idea that one person could start a blog, not sell anything for 18 months, and turn that blog into an 8-figure media company is endlessly fascinating to me.

He is a former lawyer, serial entrepreneur, writer, builder and meditator.

In January of 2006, my guest started a one-man blog called Copyblogger.

Copyblogger is now an 8-figure per year media company called Copyblogger Media, of which he is the founder and CEO.

He has ranked among the top in the world for social media and content marketing. He's been featured in countless books about business and media, and he has graced many stages.

Now, let’s hack…
